Thread Name: Tech- Scan multiple pages to one file?
Subject: RE: BS: Tech- Scan multiple pages to one file?
You need two things:
OCR software (may have come with your scanner) that supports your preferred MS Word-like software. AND plenty of time to go through and correct all the OCR errors, of which their may be many.
Either a scanner with a document feeder that automatically creates one file, or your scanner software has to supports stitching pages.
Some software -- like HP's -- will scan directly to Word and will ask you if you wish to add a page. However, doing 100 pages one page at a time would be a pain. Your local copy shop probably can do this for you on a high speed machine in about 30 seconds, but they might have to do it to PDF.
